KEF Reference 5 Floorstanding Speaker in Piano Black
KEF REFERENCE 5 exemplifies the passion for innovation that underpins THE REFERENCE design philosophy. For music or film, it reveals subtleties you'd never noticed while gripping your emotions with the full power of the performance.
Magnificent is the only word. KEF's passion for perfection embodied in a tall three-way floorstander that aligns four powerful, extremely linear 165mm (6.5 inch) bass drivers - two above and two below KEF's latest 125mm (5 inch) MF/HF Uni-Q array, with the sensational new 25mm (1 inch) vented aluminium dome tweeter at the acoustic centre. Lows are reproduced with consummate agility and control, fluidly integrating with the Uni-Q output to create an all-enveloping soundfield of spine-tingling accuracy and depth. For music or film, it reveals subtleties you'd never noticed while gripping your emotions with the full power of the performance.
The standard by which others are judged, and to which they aspire. The perfect reproduction of recorded sound is what KEF's legendary THE REFERENCE Series has always stood for. And after 40 years of continuous development, THE REFERENCE has earned its name as the yardstick of high-end acoustic engineering.
If you're a perfectionist when it comes to enjoying movies or music, it's the one name that towers above the rest. The Reference. It speaks for itself.
